Work With Us

Rape Crisis South London (RASASC) is a registered charity based in Croydon dedicated to providing services to female survivors of sexual violence.

We provide the National Rape Crisis Helpline; offer face to face and group counselling; an advocacy service for survivors reporting through the criminal justice system; an outreach service for women further marginalised by society, including women involved in prostitution; as well as delivering a large training and prevention programme.

Our service is a very busy women only service with around 60 staff, self-employed workers and volunteers. We are committed to being representative of our society, women who use our services, and bringing together those with a variety of skills and experiences to shape what we do and how we work.

In line with this, we are particularly keen to receive applications from women who are minoritised on the basis of their race or ethnicity, sexuality, or disabled status. We also welcome applications from women who have personal experience of sexual violence.

Applications will be accepted from female applicants only as being female is deemed to be a genuine occupational requirement under Schedule 9, Paragraph 1 of the Equality Act 2010. 

WE ARE LOOKING FOR BOARD MEMBERS

We are looking for enthusiastic and committed women to join our friendly team of voluntary trustees to provide professional oversight, excellent governance, strategic leadership and act as ambassadors for the organisation. We are committed to being representative of our society and bringing together those with a variety of skills and experiences to shape what we do and how we work.

If you have skills in human resources, marketing, fundraising, finance, the voluntary or public sector, you are an excellent communicator with leadership skills and are passionate about supporting a growing and dedicated team we would be interested in hearing from you.  Experience of charity management would be an advantage.

The post of Trustee is a voluntary one and all reasonable expenses are reimbursed.  We welcome applications from all sections of the community to enable us to have a diverse trustee board that reflects our communities. We are based in Croydon & have 8-10 meetings a year at the Centre.

Closing date: Friday 4th June 2021, 5.00pm
